Wild Alaska

People are happy when they live on the way they want !

I like to watch television, but only educational programs because I like to learn something new every day, and channels like National geography, Discovery, History channel  are great for me. I don’t like to watch news channel   because they are so negative and they  leave a negative trace in my subconscious whether I wanted it or not.

I have watched in National geography channel  emission about Alaska. It is really great and big country. But it is also very wild. Also,I  watched several stories about people who live there in very difficult conditions according to modern man’s understanding.Without water, without electricity , without health care.

One story is about a guy who is trapper. He sets traps in the forest and haunt animals like wolverine, fox,wild cats. He sells their fur in the city, and with that money he survives the winter in her hut. He travels a lot every day, visiting traps. But, one sentence was affected me strongly. When they asked him about  his biggest fear. He said:

My biggest fear is that I will failed to collect enough fur, and I will not be able to live here anymore.

This is the biggest fear and the second family from the second story about Alaska. They sold everything in the city, and they bought a small hut  in Alaska . They have a little baby, and they travel a lot together every day through the great snow to set the  traps  for animals. They are very happy . 

So what we need for happiness ? Do we need expensive car ? Do we need big house with pool ? Do we need a lot of money to be happy ? Maybe we do. But also think about the possibility that they  imposing it in us . Our society, our parents, our teachers , main stream media.

The biggest happiness is when you have a clear goal, and when you are living on the way you want. I will tall you one more thing. I have repeated this couple times for now, and I will every day if I have to “Happiness is habit” . 

Live your life on the way you want.Be brave to achieve your goals no matter what they are. Stop care about the opinions of other people.As you can see from the stories above, you can be happy in every corner of the world.

Live your life with full lungs because You Can Do It !!!


Once in a time, I have discovered that we are, humans,we are walking universe. That we create our own destiny. After that, nothing was the same !


  1. Living on the way you want and not the way “they” want (that’s the secret).
    When I was a little boy I was told the story of a man who was looking for happiness. To be happy, this man, had to find the shirt of the happiest man on earth. So, he traveled all over the world in search of the happiest person in order to buy his shirt. When he had already lost hopes, he was told that the happiest man in the world lived in a cave on the top of a mountain. He immediately set out on the journey to that mountain and when he finally reached the cave he could talk with him. That man told him that he was very happy living in a cave with very few things.

    After a long talk, he asked him if he would sell his shirt and he said: … I am sorry, man, but I don’t have a shirt!


    • Hello Jordi,

      what a wonderful story about pursuit of happiness. Great analogy and great metaphor for not the existence of the object of happiness. Object of happiness is do not exist. Happiness is a state of mind, as we can see from your story. You can be happy even in a cave if you have a proper state of mind.

      Thank you my friend


  2. Hi Ben, I agree with you 100%
    Its about how we want to love and not how they wan us to live, that is going to make us happy, and not vice versa. Sadly though very few people achieve this satisfaction, rest all of us keep following the materialistic world.


    • Hi Moushmi,

      yes, it is true. We live in material world, because we are under influence of the hole society . We all need money for life, but if the money is our primary goal,money because of money, then we must consider way of thinking 🙂

      Thank you for your comment


  3. I recently got on a documentary kick and am 3/4’s of the way through one on Japan. I know what you mean about educational shows and learning daily 🙂 Enjoy your Friday, Ben.


    • Hello Christy,

      we have a lot of great things every day on TV, on one hand and two much negative things on the other hand. I like to watch only good things,only positive things,because I can learn a lot from it. Sometimes is only one sentence. Sometimes there is only one sentence enough to fascinate me.

      Thank you so much for your comment 🙂


  4. thank you for sharing Jordi, great one really.

    Ben you are doing great as ever thank you.

    • Hello my dear friend

      I am so happy because of you. You are enjoying with your family and is the most important thing in Life.

      Thank you so much Mo and God bless you


    • … yes, I know very well how pizza makes kids happy and as I am the cook of the family I alwlays make home made pizza, muffins, cakes, pancakes…, my twins always tell me that I am the best cook of the world…jajaja.

      To see my family healthy, happy and when my little twins tell me that I am the best cook in the world …, this is happiness, the best gift in the world. This is not paid with money, this is priceless. Tell me, what else can a man / woman ask for in life?



      • Wow, Jordi, what a great comment. I must say that I am also a very good pizza master. I have a very good recipe which I don’t want to share even with my wife 🙂 I have a ritual with my daughter every night. I tell her a story every night. I can write a book for kids if I collect all stories which I have told her so far 🙂 And than, when she falls asleep, I kiss her small hand and I thank God for blessing me with my kids.

        So my friend, you are so right. The most important things in life are free

    • Hello,

      I am glad that you like it.
      I am sure that you have that answer. You must be honest with yourself. And I sure your goal is waiting for you. Goal is sometimes hard to define ,because of that I said that you should be honest .
